- Changed font size to 1:1
- Add more Latin symbols
- Add more Cyrillic symbols
Carthage Sans LKE is an expanded version of my Carthage Sans font, which in itself is a reimagining of Apple's Espy Sans 12 bitmap font. It aims to cover as much as possible of the Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek blocks of the Unicode standard (thus the initials -- "Latina, Kirilitsa, Elleniki"). I'm open to expanding it to any of the other scripts Unicode covers, but I have little to no personal experience with most other alphabets; if you'd like to contribute, I'd particularly be interested in Arabic, Devanagari, Katakana, Hiragana, Armenian, and Hangul. (I would like to add Hebrew as well, but it's hard to get the diacritics right in what's essentially a pixel font. We'll see.) The current status as of 10/28/2015 (the date of initial publication):
-Latin: all of Latin-1, Latin Extended-A, and "Even More Latin"; Latin Extended-B is missing some characters that seem to be mostly either phonetic notation or obsolete.
-Greek: All Greek characters supported by FontStruct. If you need some of the ancient dialect characters like Pamphylian digamma, they're now in the GitHub version; polytonic will appear there as well, if anyone asks for it. Basic Coptic support is there, although I tried to fit it into the Espy Sans aesthetic rather than trying to duplicate the Byzantine-Egyptian traditional style.
-Cyrillic: Still a work in progress, but all Slavic languages using Cyrillic characters should be covered. The main holdup is Abkhazian, which is spoken by just over 110,000 people in the world and also has one of the longest alphabets in the world; I have no idea how many of them would be interested in this, so it hasn't been a huge priority. (Besides, the PT family from Russia's Paratype is excellent and far better than I could do with most Cyrillized languages.) I've emphasized support for several languages, the most important being Vietnamese (75 million speakers deserve some support no matter how tedious it is to do so).
I've also added characters for Old Irish, Old Church Slavonic, and Icelandic. There's a number of characters used in pan-African linguistics I am not sure if I need or not; they'll get filled in eventually alongside the Cyrillic, but how fast I have no idea.

I am deeply indebted to Keith Martin (@thatkeith on Twitter), formerly of the UK MacUser magazine, and his Espy Sans Revived project for a reference for the original letter bitmaps; Carthage is entirely my work but it's hard to find Espy Sans specimens in the wild, and his work is probably the best.This is a clone of Carthage Sans
A clone of the highly popular pixel font "HaxrCorp 4088" with some support for Cyrillic letters (still working on them). I'm considering working on other letters as well. P.S. I remember seeing an extended mod of HaxrCorp 4088/S8 somewhere on the Web (downloadable on a personal website as an original Unicode-wide extension to the classic HaxrCorp 4088) and it had vast support for more letters. If you find it, do let me know! P.P.S. Suggestions to improve it are appreciated! Mods are allowed - just cite me, provide a link to this page and also distribute it under the same license. Have fun using and modding it! P.P.P.S. See also "PIXELA CYR" by sanyapolecat on FontStruct - a great addition to this font, the Cyrillic glyphs of which I might integrate as a substitute to the Cyrillic letters of this font (HaxrCorp 4089). Until then, I'll be experimenting with the Cyrillic glyphs myself until I find suitable versions that go well with the Latin base of HaxrCorp 4088. :)
